Information available only in Swedish.

 

Mona Samadi är post dok-forskare samt gästlärare på George Washington University i USA. 2012 disputerade hon i folkrätt från Örebro universitet med avhandlingen Defamation of Religion – The Right to Freedom of Expression in International and Islamic Law som granskar till vilken utsträckning yttrandefriheten garanteras inom såväl internationell rätt som islamsk rätt och undersöker ett flertal olika uppmärksammade fall av hädelse som varit aktuella de senaste åren. Hennes forskning rör främst förhållandet mellan internationell rätt och islamisk rätt. För närvarande forskar hon om kvinnans rättsliga ställning i den islamiska rätten, i synnerhet vad gäller förmyndarskapet av kvinnor. Tyngdpunkten ligger på att analysera de möjligheter som finns att inom den islamska rätten omtolka källor i syfte att förbättra kvinnans rättsliga ställning i den muslimska världen. Vid GWU undervisar hon om kvinnor i Islam.
